Fun, a free lunch and some serious bragging rights are on offer at a Top Farm top team competition at the Ashburton Showgrounds on November 9.

Ruralco has partnered up with Meridian to run the fun team contest, which will test the grey matter as well as physical fitness.

The mental and sporting activities were not strenuous, but designed to be a little bit testing and mainly fun.

Participants must be aged over 8 years.

They are hoping for 20 teams; entry is free and the event will run from 10am until 2pm.

The winning team can nominate their favourite Canterbury charity to receive $1000 from the organisers.

Each team must have one Ruralco shareholder or cardholder and the rest of the team could be family members, friends, farm workers, neighbours or anyone wanting a free fun day out.

The event is modelled on Top Team competitions of the past and include a memory game, puzzles, an egg drop, a sports relay and an accuracy sling.

A wet day venue has been booked in case the weather is rainy.

The aim of the day is to have fun but there will be gift vouchers for the top team and spot prizes throughout the day.

Ruralco’s energy account manager Tracey Gordon said it was a chance for families to get off farm and have a fun day, as well as Ruralco donating $1000 to the winning team’s selected Canterbury based charity or community group.

“If you’re looking for a free, fun and competitive day out with a big win for charity at the end – you can’t miss this.”
